Tracer On Location (Devil Ride Video), February ’12

Earlier this year I was on location with Tracer shooting behind the scenes photos and video as they filmed their clip for “Devil Ride”, the second single lifted from the album “Spaces In Between”.

The entire crew worked effortlessly and gelled really well together, despite the hideously hot, dusty conditions!

Director Tim Pine managed to keep the team on focus and working successfully to the time frames allocated – no easy task when he himself was getting sunburnt to a crisp!

When shooting BTS shots like these, it is important to frame scenes that not only will reflect the finished video, but also capture the vibe on the set. So, I would shoot long and tight from a distance while the cameras were rolling and then come in for wide, flash filled shots once Tim had called “cut”. This was also a great way to catch off the cuff moments (both still and video) of the team right after a take went wrong (or right!)

Here’s the finished video:
